The New Way of Decal Removal in 2015

March 13th 2015 in Remove Decals and Stickers

Comments Off

To our loyal following of now 4,212 customers who have used the Whizzy Wheel, we are now undergoing a major facelift

Our existing site, which is version 2 is being overhauled with our new more user friendly decal site.

This is based on people who want to remove decals and wanted questions answered before making their purchase. To help we are completing the following in 2015

  • New website with improved sticker and decal removal advise
  • More video’s to show how to remove stickers (in addition to our existing decal removal video’s). There are 5 plus decal removal video’s on this page
  • Next day shipping options to people in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia (plus the rest of the world) with Free shipping for orders of 2 or more*

We hope the new site really helps our customers who want to rid the world of ugly decals. We always get excited when receive emails (though not too many phone calls) from people who love the product.

This week we received two glowing emails from people who loved the results and clean looking car after the whizzy wheel had removed their car decals

Barry, Bathurst (Yes, that’s a common Australian name)

“Peter, got your whizzy wheel today and used it the same night. Car looks great and now can hopefully sell it easily. Thanks and good luck with the product”

Michael, TX (we seem to sell a lot of Wheels to people in Texas, maybe it’s the heat)

“Whizzy Wheels works fantastically. Took me about 20 minutes to do the job. Got quoted $225 from the shop so I am happy”

We will also provide you with open feedback. If your decal is relatively new, then a standard hair dryer  (from ebay for $20) might work to remove the car stick and will save you $29. (or you can ask your partners permission to use it. However, be careful as the cheap models, seem to have a tendency for the engine to burn out)

However, I can guarantee you, if the decal is a few years old, has been out in the heat or cold, then no hair dryer will work…

We also love helping people out to remove stickers, even if they don’t use our products. One thing we can suggest to most people is how good citrus degreaser  is at removing any adhesive or goo left on the surface once a decal has been removed.

If you do no take off the left of adhesive, dirt will stick to the surface and you will not be happy with the outcome.

So when our new site launches later this month, we really welcome your feedback on the new video’s and information about taking off stickers from cars, trucks, utes and buses.

Hopefully our blog over 100 decal removal articles will be helpful

Regards,
Peter Nobbs

Selling Decal Removal Tools to Distributors

February 26th 2015 in Remove Decals and Stickers

Firstly, thank you to all the people who completed the survey.

The overwhelming response is that finding a way to speed up Decal removal is one the best way to help businesses in the Sign industry.

I’m also not surprised that people believe that over 50% of people see removing decals as a hassle if they take on a job that needs it removing. One person responded by saying

“I lost money on a job as under quoted on how long it would take to remove decal from the side of a SUV”.

After searching for a way to help easily remove decals, I really believe we have found something very cool to share.

And before I get into it, I want to share a little about my family story in the sign game.

My father started a successful sign business about 30 years ago and during that time, car decals were invented and boomed as a way for businesses to increase their advertising by displaying decals on their car fleets.

The downside was no-one had found an effective way to take off the decals when the car was sold or needed re-branding.

The old ways of using a hair dryer, adhesive spray, metal blades or even fingers nails just didn’t work.

Often you would spend more time trying to remove a decal from a car, then you would applying it. It just didn’t make sense.

However, there is a happy story

The great news is I have been speaking and working with people in the industry and come up with a great opportunity for people in the Sign industry

Okay to cut is short, we are putting final touches on the Whizzy Wheel and in a few day’s time I will share a video about it and get your thoughts on how it can really help your business

Thanks and Best Regards

P.S – found this funny picture of me when my father started setting up his business. Definitely a bad hair day 

How to remove decals from stationary bicycles

January 21st 2015 in Remove Decals and Stickers

Comments Off

The great thing about being able to run an online business that helps people across the Globe remove decals and stickers is the variety of customer enquiries we get.

Back in 2013 I lived in New York for most of the year and struck up some great friendships and helped out people who needed help taking off Decals.

Due to the weather, we find the northern hemisphere has the busiest months in Spring and end of Winter and people prepare their cars, SUV’s, and especially Campervans /RV’s for the tourist months. Whereas the southern hemisphere is on the opposite cycle.

Just this month I had a great chat with a customer who needs help taking off decals from stationary bicycles.

Now this may seem trivial, though stationary bicycles with decals are applied in a very different manner.

Most new bicycles that come with decals and stickers on them, already have a protective coat on them. This protective coat is used to protect the bike from the weather elements, especially moisture that causes rust. The downside is that you can not take off any bike decals unless you cut into the protective coat.

Stationary bikes are different as they are used indoors (it would be pretty hard to ride a stationary bike down the street) they do not have the protective coat. This means a tool like the whizzy wheel (see below) can be used to take them off.

This was a real pleasing for my new colleague based on the East Coast and makes the job so easy.

A short note to share with you a few Festive Happy Snaps from the Whizzy  team and the  Christmas Party.

This was the fifth Xmas party for Whizzy Wheel since setting up in 2007 (and yes we were party poopers initially and skipped on celebrating the festive season)

The runaway success has been the reach into Car Fleets this year with some great successes and feel good stories (yes I feel good when we have decal free cars)

Below are a few Xmas snaps for our party themed “Tropical living” at a local Mexican restaurant. It was held a bit earlier this year (November), with baby sitters booked in early…

Removing Car Decals from the Summer Heat

November 25th 2014 in Remove Decals and Stickers

Comments Off

If you live in a hot climate, then there is bad news for removing car stickers

They become really bonded onto the surface in the summer heat.
What that means is that stickers become really hard to remove. The chemical structure of the adhesive changes overtime where the adhesive and sticker become bonded together.

This results in a situation where virtually all sticker removal tools will not work

The strategies to take off a car decal you could try (though won’t work on baked on decals are)

– Finger nails: forget it…. That method will just result in bloodied stubbed fingers

– Metal razor blade: wowow. Be careful here not to cut your fingers and the possibility to damage and scratch the paint work is just too buig

– Hair dryer: well this works if the decal is only a month or so old, though for baked on decals, it just doesn’t cut it

So I don’t want to bark up the old same saying, though they same repetition is the key to mastery.

The answer to removing car stickers is the Whizzy Wheel. It works because

1. Based on friction so regardless how old a sticker it, the whizzy wheel will remove it
2. Made of soft rubber – doesn’t affect paint work (for factory finished painted cars)
3. Wider: so works faster and lasts longer
4. Speed: spins at 2500 – 4000 rpm so gets job down.

If you want to see it in action, check out this page of ½ dozen situations of cars, windows, trucks having stickers removed

Regards,
Peter

Best way to take off Stickers from a Van?

November 1st 2014 in Remove Decals and Stickers

Best way to take off Stickers from a Van?

One aspect I love of being Chief Decal Removal Officer is every week I get calls about how we can help people take stickers off from their cars.

The main reason for this type of enquiry is often people have bought a 2nd hand van, that previously had another companies advertising stickers on the side, and they need to remove them

(and if you want to know how to get rid of that ghosting effect, you can skip to the end of the blog)

This week, we had a chap from Broadmeadow who needed to take stickers off their van. It was the usual scenario when the standard sticker removal techniques were used, but with no success

To save you the time, you can rule out any of the below approaches, if your decal has been baked onto your car for more than 2+ years.

So what does NOT work

1. Fingernails. Okay, this may work for those flimsy stickers your kid puts on the side of his bed, though any heavy duty van sticker, this just won’t work
2. Metal razor blades; this will work on glass and windows to take off stickers, but we do not recommend on painted surfaces as it’s easy to damage the paint work
3. Chemicals or spray’s: these are great at cleaning the surface once the sticker has been removed, though does not work well in actually removing the stickers
4. Hair dryer: this has mixed results and on new stickers it works quite well, though on old baked on stickers that are cracked and worn out, it doesn’t work (check out below video of the hair dryer working. This is a really new sticker)

So the proven way to take off van stickers is the Whizzy Wheel. The reason it works is

a. It uses friction to take off the van sticker, so regardless of how old the sticker is, even baked on, you can easily take it off
b. It’s made of soft rubber, so won’t affect the paint work on your car (assuming it’s factory finish paint work).
c. Speed: the Whizzy Wheel turns at around 2,500 – 4,000 rpm’s which means the sticker literally flies off the surface (check out the video below to see it in action)
d. Width: the Whizzy Wheel is about 2 inches (5 centimetres wide) so makes taking off stickers a very fast task

Impromptu plug

Now pardon interrupting the flow of this blog, though I just remembered an email I got the other week which I have copied and pasted below – these are the types of emails that make me smile all day

“My name is Jonathan Langston and I’m located in Atlanta, GA USA. I came across your video on YouTube and decided to give the Whizzy Wheel a try to use at my current company. Honestly, I didn’t really get my hopes up too much and really thought this would be another false advertised waste of money. Well, I can honestly say that I was very, very wrong. This is one of the few products I’ve seen that actually does what it claims to do.”
Now that my big ego has calmed down after getting a great email like that, I want to let you know that if you need to remove any type of car sticker or decal, then the Whizzy Wheel is the must have

We 100% stand by this guarantee and if you have any concerns that the Whizzy Wheel does not work like in the video’s, drop me a line at peter@pacificwebb.com.au and I’ll instantly refund you.

Being candid, we have sold 3,000+ whizzy wheels in the last couple of years and 99.9% of people who we hear from just love.

We would love to help you take off your car or van sticker so please drop me a line (+61 421 001 613) or try the whizzy wheel today and enjoy the benefits of a sticker free van

Regards,
Peter “Chief Decal Removal” Officer

P.S – if you want to get rid of the ghosting effect (i.e. the effect that it looks like there is still the sticker on your van, then its easy.

Mining Trucks and Cars – How to Get them Clean of Car Stickers?

October 25th 2014 in Remove Decals and Stickers

Comments Off

Recently we had a phone call from Jeremie whose business (electicial) was located in the mining area just outside of Mackay

Now this part of the world is wealthy in minerals though is very tough climate – with the temperature being 100+ fahrenheit or (over 40 degress)

What this means is that the stickers on car vehicles become bonded very tightly to the surface. This results in:

– Stickers being very hard to remove

– Car stickers becoming cracked and hard to remove using standard approach of
o fingernails
o heat gun
o prey (to the whichever God you believe/ not believe in)

What we found is the best and only way to remove a car sticker that has been really baked on is via the whizzy wheel.

The whizzy works by being different to any other car sticker removal solution on the market. The process is very simple

1. Connect a whizzy wheel to a standard drill using the arbor
2. Turn on the drill to approx. 2,500-4000 rpm’s
3. Slowly move the whizzy wheel back and forth across the decal
4. Crack a beer or favourite celebration food to toast your good work

Now the reason the whizzy wheel removes stickers so easily as it uses friction to wear away the sticker

It’s made of soft rubber so will not damage the painted surface and works wonders on car and truck windows.
We sometimes find there is adhesive or glue left on the car surface where the sticker once was.

To help remove this, we suggest use citrus degreaser (much cheaper and more effective than goo off) to clean the surface.

Remember, if you are re-applying a sticker, make sure the surface is wash thoroughly and any citrus degreaser is cleaned off. Otherwise, it will be hard to get the new stickers to stick onto the car surface

If you have any questions, (this blog started due to a customer calling us and working out a solution to his mining sticker removal situation), then please drop me a line at peter@pacificwebb.com.au or call +61 421 001 613 to see how we can help.

We have helped over 3,000+ customers remove stickers and decals from all situations and even if the Whizzy Wheel is not the best solution for your situation, we shall work out a way to help

How to have a car free of crystal like stickers?

October 19th 2014 in Remove Decals and Stickers

Comments Off

This week I had a call from a lady who needed to remove car stickers that had crystals (made by 3M) on them… well not real crystals.

It was a phone conversation so I could not see the actual car sticker, though it’s similar to the below picture

crystal-like-stickers

Until the sticker removal phone call, I had not heard of car stickers that had crystals attached to them. Apparently they are very popular now, though you want to get them place on your car correctly as need a different approach to remove.

Now to 99% of our customers, I recommend the Whizzy Wheel to remove stickers and decals from the majority of surfaces as just works so well.

You can see from the car sticker removal video how well it works

Now back to our scenario of removing stickers that had crystals on them from a car.

The Whizzy Wheel is not appropriate as it works by wearing away a car sticker through friction and it peels off (the best way is via watching the video)

The reason we did not recommend it is the crystals could mark the surface when being peel off as theWhizzy Wheel rotates at 2500-4000 rpm (and yes we are being conservative as we did not get to see the application in real life, rather had a phone call to understand the situation)

NOTE: if the scenario was a normal car sticker to remove, then we would 100% recommend the Whizzy Wheel as find it by far the BEST way to remove car sticekrs

The way we helped, is that recommended a very slow and steady approach to remove the crystal car sticker

Step 1:

  • Purchase a plastic razor blade that has a sharp/ angled edge, but will not damage the paint

Step 2:

  • Go to your local hardware store and get some Citrus Degreaser to take off the adhesive or glue that maybe left on the surface

Now you have your tool, we recommend this approach

  1. Spray the sticker edges thoroughly with Citrus Degreaser
    1. If possible, perforate the surface so the Citrus Degreaser can really get under the sticker
  2. Take the plastic blade and slowly guide the edge under the sticker lip
  3. Spray more Citrus Degreaser under the lip where the sticker has started to come off

Repeat steps 1 – 3 until the job is finished

What we don’t recommend

As this job is on a painted surface a metal razor blade is definitely no usable due to the potential to damage the painted surface

Alternative Approaches

As the crystal car sticker was made with lettering from 3M(well that’s what the customer told us), using a hair dryer to remove car stickers may not be suitable due to the strength of the sticker.

Usually the hair dryer approach to removing car stickers works for very small stickers, that do not have a strong adhesive

How we can help

Our business is removing decals and stickers from all types of surfaces and we always love the opportunity to helpPlease drop me a line on + 61 421 001 613 or peter@pacificwebb.com.au with any sticker removal questions

Peter
